Trail Mix Day is coming! Let's celebrate with a healthy, tasty twist on the traditional nut and granola mixture we all know and love (most of the time).
When it comes to denim - color, fringe, and cool buttons are just a few of the things I'm seeing in my future. We've been seeing the denim with patches trend for a while now (and, yes, I am still into it) but I want to play MORE!
I made these simple, brunchy Strawberry and Ricotta Shortcakes for my friends last weekend. They were a major hit. We chilled out on my roof, sipped pineapple mimos, and devoured every bit of the food I had prepared.
Streamline your life, and your wardrobe, when you can. This is my advice to you. Clutter doesn't bring anyone legitimate joy. It weighs us down and frankly makes things more complicated than they have to be. I often have trouble pairing down my closet in the summer.

If my father is behind the bar at a party or family dinner you will likely find him smiling while muddling a bit of cherry and orange together in a glass.
